Coolant leaking
 
I pulled into my driveway a couple of minutes ago and saw a big puddle where i usually park my car. So i get out open the hood and i start to look down by the bottom of the radiator and see my coolant just pouring out and i dont know what the problem is.

Even more difficult to tell from here, but the radiator is known to cause leaks due to crack formation of the plastic side tanks where it meets the aluminum core. Dry it as far as possible and try to find the source.

yeah it looked like it was leaking by where the plastic and metal meet. If thats the issue what should i do?

Eventhough a good tip, not sure if the extra costs for the all metal radiator (when i'm not wrong around 3 times the price of the plastic tank radiator) will outweigh the change that the radiator has to be changed again in a later stadium. Probably all depends on how long the jeep still will be used.

We don't know the yr and model of the Jeep in question. Some all alum Jeep radiators can be had for $130-150.
